Malty is telling me two packs. I get the feeling I'm making this too hard
If you want to do that many step then in theory yes. However the more steps you do the more likely you are to have an over saturated starter. I would personally use the two packs and try to have it done in two steps. Over saturation doesn't hurt anything necessarily but it can stunt to yeast growth. But if you want to save money go ahead with the one pack and just do a three step starter.

I'm showing that you could use 1 pack and get away with doing a 2 step starter using 2L at each step and be ok.
